Learning Modules

A Learning Module is a self-directed education experience that contains a video of an NCRA archived webinar, resource materials, a quiz, and an evaluation. Participants have 90 days from the date the activity was accessed  to complete the module and are able to claim CE credit immediately following the completion of the module and passing the quiz. Information regarding CE credits for each Learning Module can be found within the description of each module. CE credits range between 1.o - 1.5 CEs per Learning Module.
